06 Tow boss package? how do you know?

I have a shortbed dually 06 F350, i SWEAR it has 4.30 gears by how much higher the RPMs are compared to my 06 w 3.73s.

70mph on the 3.73s is almost 2k rpms
70mph on the dually 410s standard, 4.30s tow boss? 2400+

Without towing seems like its reving crazy. The rear diff cover has vanes on it "for cooling" i guess, is that standard

How can i tell by the axle code on the VIN # tag in the door?

What else does the tow boss package have besides the different gears?

You can use this list and cross reference the code on the tag.. it only goes to 02 but it should still be the same...

If nothing else you can always pop the cover off and count the teeth..

Automotive What is my Ford rear end ratio, do I have positraction

Yeah, its got an axle code on the door "4L" which appears to be a LSD type rear, thats not on the above list i guess because its an 2006 model.. anyone know what the 4L is then?

So the tow boss package is 4.30 gears , the aluminum vaned diff cover, how much was an option like this when new? Ive only briefly heard of it back when i got my first 06 but never saw a truck optioned with it.
